"politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. i'm live in los angeles. tonight's lead. fighting for fairness. president obama threw down the gauntlet to republicans today demanding they move quickly to stop devastating budget cuts that could damage the economy and throw hundreds of thousands of people out of work. these are automatic cuts the congress agreed to. and they're going to go into effect in three weeks unless lawmakers act now. the president is fighting the republicans cut, cut, cut obsession. >> we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep cuts to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks out there still looking for work. our economy right now is headed in the right direction. and it will stay that way as long as there aren't any more self-inflicted wounds

've talked about economic fairness on this show. and thanks to the re-election of president obama, tax rates on the top 1% finally went back to the clinton rates of 39.6%. now senator bernie sanders of vermont is taking action to bring fairness to huge corporations not paying their fair share. this is what the election was about. the story always starts with the vulture chart, doesn't it? because it shows huge income inequality between wage earners in the top 1% over the past 30 years. there's a huge difference. income disparity won't be fixed overnight, but at least the top 1% are back to paying the clinton tax rate since president obama won the fiscal cliff fight. now, the other part of this is the corporations. the effective corporate tax rate has been declining for decades. about 25% of large corporations paid no federal income taxes in at least one of the last five years. is that fair? big question mark. the effective tax rate for corporations is low because of loopholes encouraging corporations to do what? keep their profits offshore. less tax revenue for huge corporations hurts our ec

"the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the obama administration's policy of targeting americans comes under attack on capitol hill. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them. >> the president's pick for cia takes a grilling over the targeted killings of american citizens. >> people are reacting to a lot of falsehoods that are out there. >> reporter: tonight, the man who broke this story, michael isikoff of nbc news on the revelations for the brennan confirmation hearing. first it was virginia. now michigan is flirting with state-mandated vaginal probes. there's a late update on this story. i'll talk war on women with terry o'neil and actress martha plimpton. >>> senator bernie sanders has a new plan to stop corporate tax dodgers. >> corporations are people, my friend. >> the senator unveils his new b
. we're so happy to have you here. >> thank you. >> is this rebranding effort going to work for the republican party? >> it might because it depends himself on what it is rebranding itself against as events unfold. so president obama has about 12 months here. >> don't you think in terms of who they are rebranding against, the competition, if you will, if we're talking marketplace term, the democrats thus far, for the most part the democrats kind of have it together in a way they historically have not. >> well, sort of. i mean, we still don't have a budget. we don't have a grand bargain in terms of social insurance reform and taxes beyond the top clinton rate. so i think to say the democrats are operating at a higher proficiency level at the moment politically that's true, how long that lasts is the question. and without -- it's interesting because their fates are linked. if the republicans don't play a partnership role as you were saying to find some common ground, then i think the whole system once again is going to become evermore dysfunctional in the eyes of the voters. >
